The Ultimate UK Beach Wedding Venues

Written by Lottie Dainton
Summer may slowly be coming to an end but that doesn’t mean we’ve stopped daydreaming about sunshine-filled days, azure waters and white sandy beaches that seem to stretch as far as the eye can see.

Nothing beats the thought of saying, ‘I Do’, against a cool coastal backdrop, which is why today on the blog we’re bringing you the *ultimate* UK beach wedding venues. Here are a handful of stunning seaside settings that will leave you feeling smitten…

The Ferry House

Oh, how we adore The Ferry House. A charming 16th Century wedding venue set in Kent, it is home to unrivalled views across the Thames estuary, bird and nature reserves and rolling farmland – so you get the best of both worlds with countryside and coast. If that isn’t enough to tempt you, the venue is renowned for its foodie-loving menu, with AA-rosette in-house catering and fresh produce grown in their kitchen garden. It’s hard to find something that isn’t utterly lovely about The Ferry House!

The Gallivant

Tucked away behind sand dunes, The Gallivant is a luxuriously cool wedding venue offering complete exclusivity for your coastal celebration. You’ll also be spoilt with 20 exquisitely-designed bedrooms, a modern marquee and a beach that channels all the ‘Hamptons’ vibes. The beach itself is perfect for cocktails, canapés and mingling, not to mention those all-important couple portraits. For your wedding breakfast, you can feast on the finest food, made from local ingredients and produce thanks to their super talented chefs. Excuse us while we carry on daydreaming…

The team are rather fabulous too, so you’ll have everything you could possibly need for an epic beach wedding.
